Description: Here is a new addition to the Hollywood Gothique’s list of Halloween Home Haunts: A Haunting in Sylmar. We have never visited, but the photos look intriguing, and the proprietor offers this description:
“A large number of intricately-carved jack-o-lanterns (sometimes 20-plus) mixed in with a graveyard scene, which is decorated with skeletons, masks, tombstones, lighting, mist, and electronics. Music plays in the background. Although atmospheric and generally spooky, it is family friendly. There have been instances where really, really young kids have run off crying, although most are fascinated, and their parents love it. We also give out full-sized candy bars rather than the ‘fun size’ candies. Although the family members wear costumes, there aren’t any actors in makeup or masks. The decorations are confined to the front yard and a hillside on our property.”
